Tube Audio Hobby
When I have an urge to experiment, I build my own Tube Amps. But I am a protector of the Classics
Renewing Old Tube Amps, true to their factory design is my thing.
I defend the value of the original schematic, as part of the charm of this Hobby.
If I was to start to make changes to an old amp design just for fun,
it just takes the wind out of my Sails.I choose to Restore, Measure, Test, Operate and Repeat.
Until the published specifications are satisfied.Then, I relax, put on my favorite Music.
I care for my farm of DIY amplifiers, my Amp Cellar.Now just think about how amazing DIY Audio really is.
How amazing any DIY Hobby is; the hobbyist creates unique forms of art.
There is only One, in the whole world, the One You made by hand.
My website offers tips on testing for and replacing defective parts.
Always to the published specifications. A typical question I get;
CAN I REPLACE A 100V ELECTROLYTIC CAPACITOR WITH A 250V?
THE ANSWER IS YES.
When in doubt.... just ask, reach out, a few forums can also guide You along.
Just read each response carefully, not all forum members have the street know how.
Tube amps are best served with a side of knowledge, and your favorite Musicians, Artists and Entertainers
If you need help with your Project or Fixer Upper Amp, I am just an e-mail away.
The only Bias I have, is the Voltage produced by Current flowing through a Tube.
